Hello and Good day everyone! 😃
My name is Zinah Jeanne Jalipa. I am 28 years old, mother of handsome sons, aged 7 yrs old and 7 months old, Gastone and Archie.
I live in a rural community called Kapatagan, Digos City in Philippines.
REPAIRING MY PISONET BUSINESS
We, together with my husband, have been in this business for more than 5 years. We started our business by borrowing money to buy computers and slowly paying through our montly income until we fully paid our debts. We have been dedicated in self-learning to maintain our computer hardwares and softwares. It can generate enough income to feed us, pay our bills, monthly connection fee and monthly computer maintenance and have enough to save money, too.
Our family consists of four people, me, my husband and my 2 sons. My first son is now in Grade 1, studying modular classes this year and my second son is still 7 months old. I was pregnant last November 2019 and just after 4 months, was the start of COVID-19 global pandemic crisis. This is where our financial difficulty starts.
March 2020 was the start of COVID-1 global pandemic crisis here in Philippines. Our President declares total lockdown in every region of the country. All the schools, government services and most of the business stops opening including our pisonet or computer shop. We have no choice but to close down our business, and so does our monthly income stops, too.
My husband is the only one in our family who could support us, but it is only enough to feed us three times a day and we now have debts and it just increases each passing month.
Yes, we do have savings but it is only enough to feed us in the following months of lockdown and upcoming expenses for my needs as a pregnant mom and for the delivery of my second son.
Now, after 10 months of closing down our business, we planned on opening it last January 2021. We are full of hpe again since our savings are all used up and we badly needed money for our daily expenses and monthly bills.
As my husband and I are assessing our computers, we discovered that only 3 out of 16 computers are not working and needs some repairment. We borrowed some money and did repair some of the computers, sadly, it is beyond help in repairing it and needs to buy new parts of the computer. We are a family of limited income and resources and that is why we need your help.
Our computer shop has a total of 16 computers. Only 3 are running so we need 13 that needs to buy new partsfor it to be working plus turning it into a diskless system for easy maintenance of computers.
1. Monitor (10 pcs)
* Total: Php 28,000
2. Motherboard (13 pcs)
* Total: Php 45,500
3. Keyboard and mouse (13 pcs)
* Total: Php 7,800
